  • Stone setting

Precious stones mounted on chosen objects

The sophisticated technique of stone setting has its best exponents in Italy, and especially in Tuscany.
The students work on semi-finished objects in silver or other alloys, with high-quality, well-cut synthetic stones. Each exercise is aimed at teaching different setting techniques, and at the end of the one-year course the students will be able to carry out complex, technically very advanced work. Those who cannot attend the one-year course can opt for three or six month periods.
In addition to the practical lessons in the workshop (16-20 hours per week), the courses include some weekly hours of Gemmology.
Short and intensive courses are organised in the summer period (July-September), and other courses are suggested in the section Academic Courses.
There follows a summary description of the courses.
